Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tools can help businesses improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations faster and at a lower cost than other automation approaches. Interest and activity in RPA is growing and we are increasingly seeing deployments reaching enterprise scale and operating on processes across the organisation.
What can robotics do?
Using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tools, we can help organisations decrease costs and free employees’ valuable time by improving day-to-day processes, which are repetitive, and time consuming. We can do this by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations through the introduction of ‘robots’ that can carry out the repetitive day-to-day tasks typically carried out by human beings. At Deloitte, we are seeing an increase in demand for RPA technology. Deployments are reaching enterprise scale and operating on processes across various industries.
How can Deloitte help?
Deloitte can help your organisation by understanding what existing processes and systems are in place while identifying the pain points that your business may be currently experiencing. This will provide our team with enough information to identify which of the existing processes should be reviewed and improved in order to make each process more efficient and adapt to automation.
RPA tools can automate processes that are:
- Highly repetitive
- Prone to error
- Rules based
- Time critical and seasonal
Throughout the duration of your project, Deloitte will guide you in choosing the best platform to automate your processes and support you in selecting the best type of robot to automate each process. This could include a mix of assisted, hybrid, or unassisted robots.
The implementation phase of a typical project can start through a proof of concept. In agreement with your business stakeholders, our team will identify one or two process for immediate and quick implementation. The typical candidates are those with the highest return on investment when comparing ‘implementation effort’ versus ‘time saved’. This helps your organization immediately gain financial and operational benefits whilst freeing up valuable time for your employees. Once a proof of concept is in place, the team would proceed with the full implementation of additional and more complex processes identified during the initial stages of the project.
Although we pride ourselves and can support your business in automating any number of internal processes, we also understand that certain organisations may have an internal team in place who can support such automation. Depending on your needs, our team can support your business from an implementation point of view or by upskilling your technical team to give you the autonomy to automate any current and future processes.
